Web browsers have come a very long way since Navigator and Internet Explorer 1.0 These days many people use mobile browsers so there is changing demands on browsers have been reflected in innovations. We need to make the websites more user friendly and attractive as the best web browsers bring peace of mind as well as fast, efficient, pleasant browsing. Also, the user gets satisfaction.
Once Internet Explorer fell out of favour, it seemed like Microsoft were the losers in the Great Browser Wars. However, Microsoft Edge, released in 2015, has gained my fans with its useful features and reliable speed.
What most people love about Edge is its speed. The ability to download web pages as apps means that you can run things like Twitter without having to launch the browser. There are good content discovery tools too, and a growing range of add-ons.
Opera is the browser of choice for people who are forever spotting interesting content and needing to remind themselves where they found it. Built-in content tools such as Flow are elegant and efficient, making research and keeping track of content a breeze.
The Firefox browser has been around since 2004, so the brand doesn’t have the novelty factor of some of the newer additions to the browser market. However, the fact that it has stood the test of time is an indication of its quality and in 2020
Based on Chromium, it’s a speedy browser which can make use of many Chrome add-ons. Opera’s integrated virtual private network is strong on privacy, reducing tracking and boosting security, and it has a built-in ad blocker and a Crypto Wallet for cryptocurrency transactions. It’s available on Windows, macOS, Linux, Android and iOS.

Complexities in Website
But how do you ensure that the complex backend doesn’t trickle over to the frontend?
A complex UI, in general, is more than enough reason for many people to abandon a website or mobile app. When it comes to paying or subscribed users, though, don’t expect any of them to settle for your software’s complicated interface.
It doesn’t matter how amazing your product is. If the outward appearance of it drives your users crazy, you can expect large amounts of costly user churn in return.
How To Design A Simple UI For A Complex Solution
Our goal when designing the frontend of the solution is to present a very simple and intuitive interface to the user (and sometimes for their end-users, too).TestCheck of data from a variety of sources, file types, and users and then translate it into usable data inside the app. Getting users to prepare, validate and sanitize their data on the frontend.
In addition to the standard software design process, Flatfile took additional steps to ensure that users never caught a whiff of how complex their product really was. Figure Out Your Users’ Goals So You Can Design A User-First UI
Instagram recently updated the header and footer of its long-standing interface. Here’s what the header looked like before and after November 2020:
The earlier design contains two symbols/actions:
- The camera icon to take or upload photos.
- The Messenger icon to chat with connections.
The most recent design has pivoted all icons to the right. There are three of them now:
- The plus symbol to create Instagram posts, stories, reels and lives.
- The heart symbol to view activity (i.e. post engagement, new followers, etc.).
- The Messenger icon maintains the same design and placement.
Looking at the header, you might not think much is wrong here. However, Instagram likely didn’t redesign its navigation to improve aesthetics or usability. The new footer is proof of that:
Look at the middle and second-to-last icons. After November, the plus and heart icons were moved to the top-right corner of the app and replaced with the following:
- A link to Instagram reels, a feature that acts similarly to TikTok (and arguably increases the addictiveness of the platform).
- A link to Instagram shopping, a feature that enables users to shop from popular stores (not ones they actively follow).
The UI no longer (primarily) encourages users to curate content from their favourite accounts or to make organic connections with other users. Instead, the UI prioritizes the new pay-to-play aspects of the platform, favouring brands and influencers that spend money on it.
Consequently, the usability of the app has been compromised as the notification and creation buttons have moved out of the thumb zone and into a corner of the app. Not only does it make the app more challenging to use, but this further draws awareness to what’s going on behind the scenes. If Instagram users weren’t thinking about the complex algorithms and business decisions at work, the UI now calls attention to them.
Before you do anything else, figure out what your users want to accomplish as well as how they expect it to happen. Then, sum up your users’ goals similar to how Randy Wiafe, the Head of Product for Flatfile, does:
The Website should have a unique selling point that customers should hold on with bright attractive colours. They should take as much as a minimum time to load as it will put a good first impression of the company on the customer. Also, it should not be overloaded with text, the right amount of text makes it interesting and photographs make it more relatable. Also there has to be a customer support mentioned so that if someone is faces any problem, he can get it resolved as soon as possible.
